The exterior features classic Georgian reeded lines encompassing the entire box with the lid presenting an unmonogrammed cartouche.
Interior-wise, the box is fully gilt with a rich luster and remains in great condition.
Featuring a relatively slender yet rectangular design, this snuff box is ideal for carrying whilst providing ample space for storing larger sized pills/a fair amount of snuff.
The hinge and closure of the box function well with a smooth and secure closure. In hand, the box is an ideal portable size with a quality feel as expected from Birmingham silverware.
